This study investigated the morphological characteristics of myocardial bridges (MBs) using optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging compared with coronary artery angiography (CAG) and also evaluated atherosclerotic lesions in the proximal segments of MBs. Twelve patients (seven males, five females, age range 36 - 81 years) with MBs in the left anterior descending coronary artery were enrolled and examined. The mean +/- SD length of the MBs measured by OCT appeared significantly longer than… CONTINUE READING
